Love the photo. The following poem, also enjoyable.

‘If only you would take off
The boots and socks
That hold up your angry words
To feel the cold earth
as it really is’

Sometimes expressing a wish can be a powerful means of communication, regardless of it being answered.
I like having the next line that is unspoken be unspoken. Is there a reply to the first speaker, or is there smoldering silence, or stepping out of metaphorical boots onto the cold ground?
I enjoyed this and would have loved for it to sprawl down a bit further. Having reading some of your other poems I expected it to, and so was slightly disappointed. But still a very enjoyable read with a fantastic picture to boot.
really like this a lot. if only more of us could come to a compromise 🙂
Fahrenheit or Celsius? Hot and Cold !
Love is all about degrees.
Ha-ha… I like the picture, too: fuzzy slippers, fuzzy mind.
Love your poem… full of interesting thoughts.
In my Birkenstocks, reading this, I wondered what Dorothy or Cinderella might think.
Love poem ? I suppose so. After all, like love, slippers are easy to slide into and …slip off.

I am in favor of slippers. What a delightful verse, and picture!
“Just think of the slippers
We could wear together”
Made me laugh a little. I like your style.
I adore the image of Einstein in slippers! Great message too. ❤
That’s Albert Einstein in slippers.
Wearing slippers to do away with the irritations of differences is a great idea. I used to have a pair like the man is wearing.
My father used to say that a man’s shoes say a lot about him, never overlook the importance of good shoes, properly shined. You have really hit on something here!
this is so interesting to think on!
how might one’s perceptions and moods be influenced by the changing of footwear…………. Good Post!! cheers, Debi 🙂
I do love a great pair of slippers and I love this poem too!
I love it!
I love it! I’m giggling at the idea of wearing slippers together, especially the ones in the photo, which look like some kind of invention for sweeping or dusting while you walk. 🙂
Wonderfully written. The two seem enveloped, yet estranged. The picture gives a nice start to the read. 🙂
Bravo!!! I love this. The title intrigued me as it sounded silly and comical and then you read and think, oh my oh my!!!
Brilliant. Love it! Sally
It is romantic and it is not at the same time. Thanks
Very profound indeed:)
Cool photo! 🙂
Just lovely. I, for one reason and another, find it romantic. Wonderful writing.💜
Very interesting poem, I like the message it carries.
Love the picture, too.
Nice! I like the pic too.
Great poem! 😃
